We want to grow a better future with nature

Who we are

For too long, businesses have relied on chemical industrialization processes and petrochemicals — depleting our planet’s limited resources. That’s why we are committed to driving the regenerative revolution to manufacture at scale in collaboration with nature.

Led by a hand-picked team of biologists, technologists and entrepreneurs with rebel hearts, Insempra is here to create a new school of thought and collective action. The time to restore the balance between people and the planet is now. We don’t wait for change. We do what needs to be done to grow a better future.

Our mission

Unleash nature to grow matter with atomic precision — thereby enabling businesses to create a world of naturally superior products for all.

“Scaling to the power of biology is scaling sustainably. This is where business and biotechnology must meet. At Insempra we are achieving this by gathering the right people and technology around the right mission”

Jens Klein, Co-Founder & CEO

Core Team

Our founding team is united by a wealth of experience from the world’s leading academic institutions, management consultancies and companies including AMSilk, Clariant, Evonik, Fraunhofer and Lonza.
